Every Seventh Wave by Daniel Glattauer
Released: 31st January 2013
Series: Yes, book two in the series
The eagerly awaited sequel to "Love Virtually"--2011's wittiest, most compelling love story. ""How will this go on, Leo? The same as before? But where will it go? Nowhere, just on. You live your life, I live mine. And the rest we'll live together." " "Love Virtually" ended as Leo abruptly departed for a new life in the United States, determined to end once and for all the intense cyber-exchange that threatened Emmi's marriage and his own happiness. But shouldn't these unconventional lovers--intimates who have never met in person--get another chance? Readers thought so, and begged for more. The captivating story continues as Leo returns from Boston and gradually resumes his email contact with Emmi. But now he has his own real-life relationship, with Pamela, a woman from the US. Still, Emmi and Leo cannot stop writing to each other, no matter the consequences. When Pamela learns of Leo's secret and unusual liaison, she returns home, and Emmi's marriage to Bernhard is tested to its limits. Once again Daniel Glattauer delivers an irresistible page-turner--and a sequel worthy of the original.
Well as you probably know me by now as this is not the first book in the series I will be giving nothing away about the plot. I don't want to spoil things.....
What I will say is be prepared........ this is a rollercoaster of a ride and I felt quite exhausted by the end of the book. I honestly did not know where the story was going to go next, but I can say I was satisfied with the ending.
Again like Love Virtually this is purely written in email to email format. Therefore I could whizz my way through it. It took me just under a day to read, I rarely put the book down, only when I needed a cup of tea :)
I have to say my only niggle is, that sometimes I wasn't too sure at first which character was writing the email, it did take a little guess work at times and I did have to skip back over things a few times; but a minor hindrance.
My favourite character had to be Leo, I did find Emmi a bit annoying at times, but there we are. I can say both books are worth reading so if you haven't got a copy go put them on your wishlist :)
A nice quick read, but beware it should come with a health warning. Don't think my nerves could cope with a third book.
My Thoughts on the Cover:
It's a sweet cover and depicts the story well.
